Sail Away

I've been having another session in my craft room again, where one thing leads to another.  I'm really enjoying doing this lately.  Come and have a look:
I had to make a card for a resident, and knew I wanted to use the old Sail Away stamp, as the recipient used to be in the marines, so I wanted something slightly nautical.
It's hard to tell, but I've stamped a script stamp all over the cardstock.  I swiped ink direct from my ink spot over the tag, bashful blue at the top and baja breeze at the bottom, which went on beautifully, then stamped the boat, then again on white card stock, cut out the sails and glued them in place.  Loving it!
Then I did this:

I love this acrylic block technique.  Unfortunately I mostly have ink spots and have only just discovered that you can still do it with them, if you ink liberally all over the acrylic block with a pale ink.  I stamped it on the white cardstock and then added the Sail Away stamp.  I've framed the image in Midnight Muse and then used my last ever piece of River Rock cardstock.
Then this happened:

I'd actually loaded my block with ink and then sprayed the block with my new glimmer mist, just to see what it would look like.  It's actually beautifully shimmery, which you can't really see in this photo.
I found myself inking up my fabulous Eiffel Tower image from Artistic Etchings, my new stamp set.  So glad to get this before it retired.
I've stamped the ink splodge image and post mark from French Foliage and then added the sentiment from a set that comes with my new magazine. 
I couldn't think what to do with it, until the next day I turned it over and did this:
It's now the tag to go on my husband's birthday present!
Note to self: Never throw anything away...
Back soon
